having no symptoms of illness or disease
Not exhibiting any symptoms of disease.
In medicine, any disease is classified asymptomatic if a patient tests as carrier for a disease or infection but experiences no symptoms. Whenever a medical condition fails to show noticeable symptoms after a diagnosis it might be considered asymptomatic. Infections of this kind are usually called subclinical infections. Diseases such as mental illnesses or psychosomatic conditions are considered subclinical if they present some individual symptoms but not all those normally required for a clinical diagnosis. The term clinically silent is also found. Producing only a few, mild symptoms, disease is paucisymptomatic. Symptoms appearing later, after an asymptomatic incubation period, mean a pre-symptomatic period has existed.
Asymptomatic refers to a condition or individual who is carrying a disease or infection but does not display any signs or symptoms. Despite not feeling sick, asymptomatic individuals can still spread the disease.
In medicine, a disease is considered asymptomatic if a patient is a carrier for a disease or infection but experiences no symptoms. A condition might be asymptomatic if it fails to show the noticeable symptoms with which it is usually associated. Asymptomatic infections are also called subclinical infections. The term clinically silent is also used. Knowing that a condition is asymptomatic is important because: ⁕It may develop symptoms later and so require watch and wait or early treatment. ⁕It may resolve itself or become benign. ⁕It is required that a person undergoes treatment so it does not cause later medical problems such as high blood pressure and hyperlipidaemia. ⁕Be alert to possible problems: asymptomatic hypothyroidism makes a person vulnerable to Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome or beri-beri following intravenous glucose. ⁕The affected person may be infectious and unknowingly spread the infection to others.

I mean, the evidence that I'm aware of as of today is that close to 40 % of the cases of the infections are asymptomatic and asymptomatic people transmit the infection, so, not testing -- I mean, if you have been in contact with somebody for a few minutes, that's okay. But if you have been in contact for 50 minutes and that people doesn't have a mask, I think you need to be tested regardless if you have symptoms or not. We know especially young people going into White House and then transmit inside the household. So, the guidelines baffle me and I really don't understand them.
Many, many things need to be looked at. How many people were asymptomatic? How many cases lead to microcephaly? What genetic factors are involved?
There's been good communication with our colleagues to confirm asymptomatic infection, to confirm asymptomatic transmission, to be able to get a better handle on the clinical spectrum of illness in China, what we don't know though is how much of the asymptomatic cases are driving transmission.
If they get muscle aches and remember that they are taking the drug for an asymptomatic disease, maybe they are going to stop taking the drug, high cholesterol has no symptoms – it’s not like a headache or a stomach ache or feeling bad – it is just a risk factor.
